How to Grow Strawberries from Seed

How to Grow Strawberries from Seed

Ever since I was little, I have loved strawberries. I remember going strawberry picking as a child, filling up on berries right in the field and getting what I called a “strawberry-ache” from the sore tummy I always had afterwards.

Those were fond memories for me and I continued to pick strawberries on my own, as I became an adult. Although I knew nothing of gardening during that time, I knew that strawberries tasted better when freshly picked.

After moving to the country, finding interest in gardening and building our first kitchen garden, I knew that strawberries needed to be included in my gardening plan.

Through experience, I learned that strawberries are quite simple to grow from seed, becoming my preferred method for growing them. 

In this post, I share how you can successfully grow strawberries from seed. I walk you through the different strawberry types, so you may select the ones that work best for your garden. I also discuss the correct time for starting your seeds, tools required, the right seed starting mix, directions for seed sowing, pricking out into seed trays and strawberry watering requirements. Finally, I discuss transplanting your strawberry seedlings to the garden.
